 “I am a diabetic and spend around INR 1500 (USD 23) per month on medicines. The out of pocket expense on medicines is a huge burden on my family. During my last visit to the Uplift run community clinic, I was informed that they have started offering medicines at discounts. This was a god sent opportunity for someone like me. I immediately placed an order for a month’s supply of my diabetes medicine”.  She elaborates, “I received the medicine within 3-4 days of placing the order at INR 1300 (USD 20). Given my economic conditions, every penny saved is important for me and my family.
